Construction contractor Georgiou, along with two Perth architecture firms, have been selected to work on the $57 million Aubin Grove train station ahead of a final construction tender later this year.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said a joint venture between Coniglio Ainsworth Architects and MPS Architects had been selected as the lead design consultants for the project.

“(The joint venture) will work closely with Georgiou under an early contractor involvement model,” he said.

“This ensures project planning is on the right track before the construction tender is finalised, and gives the state government greater certainty on delivering the Aubin Grove station on time and budget.”

Mr Nalder said there would be about 3,900 boardings expected at the station every day.

Construction of the station will begin during the year, with completion expected sometime next year.

“The government has also committed another $23 million toward funding two new three-car train sets to cater for increased demand once the station comes online,” Mr Nalder said.

The station will be built on the Mandurah line between Kwinana and Cockburn Central stations, and will be connected to existing shared access pathways on both sides of the freeway via two footbridges, which will provide access for passengers who walk and cycle to the station.

Six new bus feeder services and bicycle facilities will also be incorporated into the design.

“Passengers who wish to drive to the station will have access to the largest car park on the Transperth network, with 2,000 bays and a dedicated drop-off area,” Mr Nalder said.
